Tumblelog tribute for Rydia of FINAL FANTASY IV. You know who I'm talking about. A child once and an adult next. A whip-wielding lass. A caller of summoned creatures. A master mage. One of the youngest fighting for the peace of the world and she's already a strong, respected individual. She doesn't need a surname. She doesn't need a love interest. She's not of royalty, she bonds more with the Eidolons. She's that awesome.
